2020 At The Mount
The Mount, Edith Wharton’s home in Lenox, Massachusetts, was awarded a $300,000 grant by the National Endowment for the Humanities earlier this summer. The grant was a lifeline, funding humanities-related programs and staff positions through December 2020.
The award allowed The Mount to expand its roster of online literary conversations and reopen the historic house museum, in compliance with the current Covid-19 safety guidelines.
Susan Wissler, executive director of The Mount, joins us now.
